Announcement

CONGRATULATIONS to XiaoHui Hu (西域老狐) and Yong Shuo Li (阿朔)!

Both men have completed the through hike of the Appalachian Trail (AT). The AT is a world famous hiking trail along the Appalachian Mountain range from Springer Mountain, Georgia in the south to Katahdin Mountain, Maine in the North, total 2,160 miles. The thru-hikers have to backpack all the way; arrange their supply plan and face challenges on many unpredictable situations. 西域老狐 and 阿朔, they started off the journey with just a passion. In overcoming the hunger, the fatigue, the extreme weathers and sometimes distressful situations, both have completed the expedition in less than five months. In several occasions, their journeys were interrupted as they had to make some extra efforts to go home when their families needed them. We owe our gratitude to 西域老狐 and 阿朔 for regularly updating their journals. As getting electricity and radio signals are difficult in the wilderness, they diligently let us share their photos, what they saw, who they met, their thoughts and interesting stories. 西域老狐 and 阿朔 also reminded us about George Li, who had done his AT through hike in 1999. We are all very thankful for their inspirations and services to CMCNY.
